1. For the wasabi sauce - Mix together mayo, wasabi powder, smoked paprika, minced garlic and about 1 tsp. lemon juice (to taste). Refrigerate.

2. Buy tuna about 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick (about 1 lb.). Slice into 3 strips. Coat with sesame oil and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3. Combine black sesames with a little kosher salt and ground pepper on a plate. Press tuna pieces firmly into mixture so the seeds adhere to the tuna.

4. Heat olive oil in a skillet over high heat. Sear tuna for about 1 1/2 minutes. Flip to the opposite side and sear for about 1 1/2 minutes more. Remove and let cool.

5. Slice cucumber into rounds (about 32). Slice tuna into 1/8 inch thick slices. Place each slice on cucumber round and top with wasabi mixture.
